But how do we create sustainable funding?
With a generous donation of $50,000, you can help us create an endowed fund that will support CHE@Emory in perpetuity. Providing endowed support can allow for one student to go abroad each and every year. Or it can support the purchase of two laptops for our CHE fellows…
For $100,000 we will create a named fund and the reach of our programs increases by 100%. Essentially, with an endowed fund the more you give the greater the the impact of our programs, because we can do more with the funding.
When you support CHE@Emory with an endowed fund, an investment funding stream is created that supports fellowships, practicums, capacity building, and research each year and every year, without the need for additional financial inputs. By creating sustainability and fiscal effectiveness, we can provide support across all areas of our programming from today into the far reaching future. Who knows what tomorrow holds, but with an endowed fund you can help us make sure that the CHE programming is always creating capacity and responding to those at need most in the world.
Investment in our students is truly an investment in the future.
